Etrian Odyssey scans are menu-tacular

We know how you like your hardcore RPGs: loaded with text menus. It's not a game if it doesn't involve constantly selecting from nested lists of items. From the looks of these new scans, Etrian Odyssey 2 will fill your spreadsheet-gaming needs admirably.

Sure, there's great character art or whatever, but we know what the real attraction is -- all those numbers in rows, and all those actions to select. From the menu-based RPG combat to the skill-point distribution, you'll be staring at text-filled rectangles for endless hours.

We really appreciate that companies are still making ruthlessly hardcore old-school dungeon RPGs like this. Even if we don't necessarily have the requisite RPG-ology degree to be able to play this one.
